Two things:

If Ms. Vance is 56, that means she probably got married around age 28-29 (assuming Marten is somewhere around 29-30).

If Veronica and Henry got married around 1985-86, it would mean she was roughly the same age that Marten is now. Which, I assume, would make it doubly wistful.

Quote from: The Love Jacques
Really interesting how everyone is responding to Claire's scotch troubles and not Marten's mom. I thought that was just a throwaway gag!

I'd say that's because up until a few strips ago Claire was the main focus of attention and we're having trouble transitioning.

For me it's the fact that "midlife crisis" or "missed the chance for love by age" drama is getting pretty old (Ha!). I read too many sliceoflife webcomics.

Proud owner of a six pack I have done nothing in particular to get. :-D

When people brandish their guts and claim "I used to have a six pack!", the appropriate responce is "Then you obviously drunk it all".  :evil:

@Comic:
I never understood people who push themselves to drink stuff they don't like the taste of. Then again, I don't even understand how ANYONE could like the taste of alcohol at all.
To me, people drinking scotch/whiskey/rum and "enjoying" at are just very good at preventing their face from going "BLERGH!" and lying about it.  ;D
Disagree with the first part, agreed on the second. Everything's worth a try or two, even if it was so overpowering the first time that your taste buds barely had a chance.

That said, I've tried alcohol of various types on various occasions, and it's never seemed remotely palatable. Not light beer, dark beer, multiple types of wine, rum, whiskey, Margaritas that were 9/10 fruit juice, vodka, sprite and vodka that was 9/10 ice, or anything else. At best, it tastes like someone terminally screwed up a perfectly good drink by adding alcohol. At worst, it was alcohol.
Most alcohol is an acquired taste, you drink enough of it, you grow to like it (or at least not hate it). I don't know if I've got to the "like it" stage with hard liquor, but there are beers I'll drink because they taste incredibly good to me.

I knew a girl who worked with a personal trainer (at 19, which I frankly found ridiculous since it was her parents paying for it... no 19 year old needs her own car and personal trainer without having to fund them herself, but anyway) and she used to get her abs torn in order to encourage them to be six-packy. This sounds horrific to me - is it good/bad bodybuilding practice?

On the alcohol thing, I have found very few alcoholic drinks I like. I enjoy good quality red wine including port, good dry white wine, fruit cocktails (dangerous... I think I'd like them just as much without the alcohol though) and that's basically it. Last night I did two of the most disgusting shots I've ever had, which includes the vile four-types-of-cheap-vodka concoction I once tried. Ugh.

I guess I've never gotten to that stage with hard liquor then. I like some beers, though.

Stencil.

Think drill sergeant.



Drill Sergeant voices are more about giving orders to people in confused states.  A dom voice should be authoritative but not overwhelming.  This looks like a job for Times New Roman!

R. Lee Ermy would be proud of Veronica.

Except R. Lee Ermy was a Drill Instructor.. different branch.  Don't ever call a Marine Drill Instructor a Drill Sergeant - likely, they'll politely correct you, but it's still damn irksome!

And onto my comic post:

Marten is tending to the immediate concern - the passed-out drunken friend.  But once he handles that, I'm sure he's going try to take care of his mother - even if it means him being unusually assertive towards her. 

And on alcohol - quite an acquired taste.  12 year whiskey on the rocks.. Jameson 12-year, is my poison of choice.  I can drink most anything, but there's some I stay away from, because they invoke.. odd reactions.   Vodka being on.

Not really sure what you mean by that exactly.  Like, "manually torn by a surgeon?" :-o

I ask because tearing muscles is the basics behind weight lifting and muscle increasing.  You subject your muscles to greater than normal amounts of stress your muscles can generally withstand and as a result, they "tear".  And due to repetition, dieting (higher protein intake) your body fills in those tears with new muscle.

Really, the secret behind the abs is the diet, which is why most of us don't have them. :oops: Ab Diets are strict as hell.

Panels 3-4: that awkward moment when you see a trans-woman's features, and you suddenly realize just how masculine they really are. The subtlety of Jeph's art style is truly remarkable.

Doesn't beat that awkward moment when you realize how often people will really search out any feature at all on a trans woman to claim they're visibly masculine, even when those features would be unnoticed on a cis woman.

Depends on the DI. I know a couple former DIs who got "twitchy" about that sort of thing. Worst addition to any unit is a former DI. Moto SOBs need to be kept on the Drill Field where they belong.

On to booze! I drink whiskey and rum straight and I have actually had both scotch and irish whiskey old enough to order themselves. It's all awesome.

Rum drinkers! Release Kraken rum on yourselves post haste. Dollar for dollar the best you can buy.
Whiskey drinkers! For Irish Whiskey ANYTHING you can from Knappogue Castle, buy it, treat your taste buds and throat the way they deserve.

I really don't think Claire is obviously masculine...

Oh, my apologies – I meant no disrespect, just trying to highlight how those two words hit me, whatever the other words may have been.  It was intended to reflect my experience reading it, and not on you, writing it, at all.

I briefly considered "[some words] Claire [more words] transition."  Would that have been better?  Or is this one of those observations I'm supposed to keep under my hat in polite company?

I think by tearing she meant that her trainer sort of pulled on her abs, I honestly don't know. But the impression I got (through the filter of horror and the fuzzy effect of intervening time on my memory) was that it wasn't just through exercise but through some kind of physical intervention.

I've been getting huuuge Hannelore vibes from Claire since she was introduced. Very Jeph Jacquesian cutie (with issues!) who Marten befriends and who has all these "cute" moments like drinking alcohol and having cute reactions to it and blah blah blah. This is why I enjoy characters like Faye/Dora/Meena/even Raven in her own way/Penelope, who contribute to the comic's humour with wit and banter and not slapsticky quirky funny face cute moments or whatever.

It all feels very recycled and tired.

you're right, Claire is female in her day to day life, my mistake. Just another tranny slave then.
Just a word to the wise : the word "tranny", like the word "nigger" or the word "kike", is deprecated. Parentherically, Intersex people don't like being called "hermaphrodites" either, let alone "pseudo-hermaphrodites". Those two terms are slurs in most contexts, unless dealing with specific medical conditions, both very rare. FWIW technically I'm a protandrous dichogamous pseudohermaphrodite, so for me it's accurate, though not for most,

Please don't use that word again, now that you've been informed OK?

Naw worries, mate. It's just kind of like uh...well like 'nigga'. There's some social dynamics where some people can use that with each other, but introduce it in the wild and it can cause a lot of problems.

This.


It was a little icy, and pouring rain.  Visibility was crap, and I turned towards what I thought was the exit.  Spun a bit and crunched against the post.  Bent the frame of the car.  More expensive to fix than the car was worth. 

Funny thing was, it still drove fine.  I took it 20 miles to get home, no problem.

It's unfortunate, but it's true. My brain automatically picks out the little details and focuses on them. I may notice masculine features on cisgendered women, or feminine features on guys, but my mind won't subconsciously focus on them like it does with transgendered folk. Truth is, I have to make a concerted effort to pretend there's no difference, or that I don't notice.

Or try driving down a street in a large New Mexico city at 5 in the morning, and suddenly realizing as you're turning to follow a detour for the Interstate highway that you're NOT in the left turn lane, but are instead in the oncoming lane of traffic.

Yes, that's right - I took a wrong turn at Albuquerque. LITERALLY.

Bugs Bunny would be proud.

Fate decided, after I fell asleep at the wheel, that it would pit my wife's car, at 55mph, against a handful of trees. (I still thank God that there were no other cars on the road at 3 a.m.)

The trees won. Shattered the windshield, bent the entire vehicle frame by 12 degrees laterally, split the engine block in half, ripped the shoulder belt mount right off the car, and sent a fifth of peppermint schnapps from the trunk into the front seat. And I got out with literally a scratch.

...And an airbag-shaped bruise.

...And a concussion.
